Cabinet, anoniem, c. 1755 - c. 1765

notenhout en eikenhout, gefineerd met noten- en wortelnotenhout, h 243.7cm × w 198.5cm × d 70.5cm. More details

All the elements of this cabinet are curved, as if the entire piece of furniture were moving. The carved ornament - a combination of plants and flowers and abstract forms - reinforces that impression. Only rarely in the Netherlands did such a large and massive piece of furniture manage to express the Rococo style so perfectly. Perhaps this cabinet was designed by a sculptor and not by a cabinetmaker.
